I am helping a friend out with his Moodle installation... we are both new to Moodle. Version 1.9.9 has been setup on the server. Courses can be created, students can be enrolled in the courses, but when a student tries to upload a file for an assignment, the web browser just hangs. We have tried multiple web browsers with no luck. It doesn't matter if it's an advanced upload or a single file upload.
When administrators upload files (not via an assignment upload), there is no problem... so I don't think it is a problem with the PHP or Apache settings. This definitely appears to be a problem we are having with the Assignment module specifically.
Specifically, here's the process that is causing the browser to hang...
Student goes to the course and then clicks on the assignment. Student then selects a file from their computer to upload and clicks the "Upload this file" button. The web browser just sits there... appearing to be trying to load the next page. If you wait long enough, you either get a web browser error message stating that the page can't be viewed, or you get a blank screen.
We've been over just about every setting in the system, but can't seem to get it to work. I'm hoping we're just missing something obvious. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
